Experience Father's Day
With Father’s Day approaching, families are looking for the perfect gift. This year, visitors to Galveston can give the gift of experience, with a variety of new and unique activities to share with dad amid a relaxing oasis.
Here is a list of exciting ways to make memories with dad in Galveston this Father’s Day weekend:
Hoist your mugs to dad this Father’s Day weekend while taking him to the island’s top brewery: Galveston Island Brewing (GIB). Dad can sample exclusive beers in the brewery’s tap room or enjoy the outdoor yard area with spaced out seating. Can’t find a sitter? GIB has a playground for the kiddos to enjoy while you relax!
If you would rather reel in lunch, get some fresh air and spend quality time with dad on the water. For anyone seeking fresh seafood and coastal recreation, Galveston is the perfect fishing destination. Cast a line at any of the Seawall’s two public fishing piers complete with observation decks and concessions or head to Seawolf Park— a hotspot for trout and redfish. If dad is feeling ambitious, book a fishing charter to reel in bigger fish like Snapper, Tuna and Shark. Many local restaurants on the island will even prepare your catch!
Special Discount: Out Cast Charters is offering $50 off on any of their trips. Book on their website and use code: DAD50.
Insider’s tip: Waterman on Galveston’s west end has a boat launch and will grill your catch upon your return.
Hit the green with dad this Father’s Day and play a round of golf at the Moody Gardens Golf Course. Open to the public, the course is complemented by lush scenery and designed for all age groups and skill sets. The Moody Gardens Golf Course was named one of the best golf course remodels in the country by Golf Digest – you can be the judge. The course was designed by renowned golf course architects Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design. Book your round today!
Artist Boat’s Coastal Heritage Preserve currently encompasses a 690-acre conservation area on West Galveston Island. Artist Boat runs educational programs that meld nature and culture on these wetlands. Guides combine science and art during creative and fascinating kayak tours of the wetlands around Galveston Island, ideal for dad.
Have dad experience a one-of-a-kind, three-wheeled roadster that attracts riders and drivers alike! It is fun to drive solo, even more fun when the experience is shared with a passenger. It is time to climb in, take the wheel, and go for the ride of your life! Stop by Galveston Slingshot Rentals located at 2115 61st St and let them know you are there for Father’s Day to receive an additional 30 minutes of drive time absolutely FREE! Won’t be in town that weekend? They also offer gift certificates.
No Father’s Day is complete without a visit to some of the most popular museums on the island. Whether you are looking for a WWII-era submarine, some locomotives, an offshore drilling rig or one of the world’s largest collections of historical artifacts (and everything in between) – Galveston is full of must-see memorabilia.
